ClinicalKey: New Clinical Information Tool Replacing MDConsult

The Libraries have subscribed to Elsevier's ClinicalKey online service, which replaces the electronic content that was formerly offered through MDConsult. It offers a more robust (yet simple) searching interface and access to thousands more books and journals, as well as other sources, as noted in the following list. ClinicalKey is a comprehensive, trusted, and speedy resource for clinical information, enabling faculty, residents, and students to locate topic overviews as well as in-depth information in order to meet every day and unusual clinical challenges.

Looking for Journal Articles?

We've got them! We've been making some big changes over the summer, especially when it comes to finding electronic journals.

Get It! from the Library!

The Libraries' transition from SFX to Get It! is almost complete. You should be seeing the eye-catching Get It! button in all database search result. Get It! will lead from your search results to the Drexel-subscribed options for getting the full text of an article online; if the article isn't available online, Get It!

GET IT! at the Library

The libraries have begun transitioning to a new link-resolver system; that's "library-talk" for the mechanism that helps you get from an article citation in one database to the article content that may be available from a different provider.

SFX: OVID and ScienceDirect connection problems

We have been experiencing some difficulties connecting to journals in the OVID and ScienceDirect (Elsevier) collections via the SFX linking system.  The OVID problem seems to occur only when connecting from off-campus while the ScienceDirect problem can occur regardless of location.

In both cases, it is still possible to obtain the desired journal article.

For ScienceDirect journals: ScienceDirect seems to be having trouble interpreting the article-level information from SFX.  Return to the SFX window, and remove the year, volume, issue a

This SAGE Premier collection replaces Drexel's access to SAGE Full Text coll

Postgraduate Medicine -- more access online

We've added a new access option for Postgraduate Medicine, with content from 1999 through the latest issue.  A personal account feature makes it easy to email articles to yourself, or to keep track of favorite articles online.

Find Postgraduate Medicine through the Library Catalog --  Choose the "Miscellaneous e-journals" option for access directly from the publishers.

OVID journals policy

I have had a few folks calling in frustration over accessibility to some of our Ovid journals (from either PsycInfo, LWW Total Access Collection, or Journals at OVID within Medline).  The root of the issue is OVID's accessibility policy, which is:
